TEL AVIV, Israel (CNN) -- Two bombs hidden in trash cans
exploded within minutes of each other Thursday evening,
injuring at least 13 people -- some seriously, security
"There was a very strong explosion under the Central
Cinema, in a snack bar. A few minutes later, there was
another blast," a witness told Israeli Army Radio.
Police were speculating that the blasts might be the work of
a criminal syndicate in the neighborhood, but had not ruled
out the possibility of terrorism.
Jerusalem Bureau Chief Walter Rodgers and Reuters contributed to this report.
